Siamanto's desk at Hayrenik building in Watertown, mass.

Dr. Minas Kojayan had the fiery Siamanto (1878-1915) as his topic. Dr. Kojayan portrayed Siamanto as "a poet of powerful imagination and flight" who sings of the pain, fury and rebellious spirit of the Armenian. Siamanto "considered it the calling of the Armenian poet to sing about the pain of the Armenians, and if death exists, then one must die singing, heroically" said Kojayan. "Terms like "earth", "light", "words of marble," "sun", "springs of love", "arms", "struggle" are pivotal words which set apart the poetic repertoire of Siamanto, the singer of blood and fire, fight and battle, struggle and dawn" and the speaker proceeded to demonstrate his points by analyzing several of Siamanto's works.
